The definition of matriarch says:
“A woman who rules or dominates a family, group, or state; specifically: a mother who is head and ruler of her family and descendants.”
“The Matriarch” is also the brand new track and music video off of Unleash The Archers’ upcoming album Apex. The album marks the tenth anniversary of Unleash The Archers! These heavy metal heroes are celebrating this honor with an exhilarating feast on their fourth masterpiece – out on June 2nd via Napalm Records!

“This track is chapter three in the story, and in it we are introduced to our antagonist “The Matriarch” in all her malevolent glory. We call this one our “quick banger” because it’s fast, catchy, and fun, and hopefully it won’t take long to learn the words! It is sung from an omniscient point of view, drawing the listener in with tales of The Matriarch’s depravity. The best part is the bridge, because the song is so dark, and then it launches into this flowing wraithlike guitar melody that is so memorable, I sing along to it every time and I think the fans will too! Absolutely cannot wait to play this one live ;)”
